It would also be possible to do this now:

{ 'struct': 'VsockSocketAddress',
  'data': { 'cid': 'int', 'port': 'int' } }

then down the road expand to:

{ 'alternate': 'StrOrInt',
  'data': { 's': 'str', 'i': 'int' } }
{ 'struct': 'VsockSocketAddress',
  'data': { 'cid': 'StrOrInt', 'port': 'StrOrInt' } }

although the C code to do type-safe access vsock->cid.u.i or
vsock->cid.u.s based on vsock->cid.type is a bit more verbose than just
accessing vsock->cid as a string and converting every time around.
Where it gets really interesting is that using the alternate would allow
all of these QMP forms:

{ "socket": { "cid": 1, "port": 2 } }
{ "socket": { "cid": "1", "port": "2" } }
{ "socket": { "cid": "host", "port": "service" } }

It MIGHT be worth going the type-safe route, especially if we WANT to
convert the existing SocketAddress uses to use the alternate rather than
always managing things as a string.  But it doesn't have to be in this
patch.

This says stop at the first comma after the colon...

...but this rejects a trailing comma.  Is a trailing comma possible base
on how QemuOpts work? If so, do you need to handle it here?

Otherwise looking okay to me.
